Keret1

Part-residence, part-art installation, Poland's "Keret House" has opened after three years of construction, becoming home to Israeli writer Etgar Keret. The building was inserted between two houses on Chlodna Street in Warsaw, after architect Jakub Szczesny of Centrala was inspired by the juxtaposition of their pre- and post-war origins.

The house is 4 feet at its widest point and 27 inches at its most narrow. In the words of its creator, the building and its narrow space represents a connection between the history of the two buildings on eitherside. The accomodation will be used by Keret for part of the year and host a range of traveling artists for the rest of it. Despite it's unusual build, the home is fully functional as a liveable space.
